    FOOTBALL STATS

    I live in Virginia Beach, VA and have only been able to actually watch two games on the tube, Iowa and Oklahoma, both were on live out here. I watched the Toldeo game on the internet and listen to most other games on Yahoo. Because I can't/don't watch the games live, I pay more attention to the stats in the Sunday paper (not a complete set of stats but just a box score). Aside from the thrashing at the hands of Texas Tech and Texas, stat-wise, I would say all other games were winnable. I look at the total yardage, time of possession, and turnovers the most.
    What stats do you pay the most attention to and why?

    you are correct... if we score it the red zone, either a TD or a !#@$!% Field Goal, we win at least half others if not more.

    things can only get better with Gene's personal on the field.

    The score.

    Overall, I don't care too much abou stats. I don't what they all are, but I think statistically we would look like an ok team. Good time of possession, plays, penalties, etc. So in the "traditional" stats - we're a little bit of a mystery being 1-7.

    I would have to say that our futility lies in red-zone efficiency which leads to stats like points per game, and turnovers. More of the prior, since we won the TO battle 4-1 yesterday (I think) and still lost. I don't know if they keep a red-zone stat, but I would have to think we're horrible.

    Third down efficiency on both offense and defense is a big one.
